Fort Worth: Cowboys, Culture ... and Food!, Take I - Sundance Square

By Tom Burke,

'Tis the holiday season and the week before the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl and all throughout Fort Worth there is great clatter and anticipation of the arrival of the California Golden Bears and Air Force Falcons. And I imagine there is much excitement among California and Air Force fans of soon experiencing all that the great city of Fort Worth has to offer.

Goff leads Golden Bears with skill and finesse

By Dominic Clark,

Not since Aaron Rodgers has a Cal quarterback produced such conference recognition like Jared Goff.

Goff was justifiably a first-team All-Pac 12 selection this season as a junior.  The last Cal quarterback to receive the honor was in 2004 by Rodgers, the future hall of famer now playing for the Green Bay Packers.  Goff will surely add to his California legacy on December 29 when the Golden Bears meet Air Force in the 13th Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.

Goff presents major challenge for Falcons' defense

By Art Garcia,

Air Force junior cornerback Roland Ladipo doesn't have any illusions about Cal quarterback Jared Goff when Falcons line up against the Golden Bears in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.

"That's a top 10 quarterback right there," Ladipo said. "He can make all the throws and it should be a challenge, but we're just going to do our job out there, and try and put ourselves in good spots."

Bo’s Bits - Dykes Family Brings Rich Coaching Tradition

By Bo Carter,

There have been many famed father and son combos in college football, according to the Intercollegiate Football Research Association.

Some of the more notable names have been the Bowdens (NFF College Hall of Fame coach Bobby and sons Terry and Tommy), who have amassed a record 637 composite victories over their college caching careers, the Shula family, the Stagg family, and the Holtz family, and the Tressels, among others.

Roberts steps up to lead the Falcons

By Art Garcia,

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun felt good about his quarterback depth coming into the season. It took just two games to put that depth to the test.

Luckily for the Falcons, Karson Roberts passed.

"It's unfortunate when someone goes down with injury, but that's just the way it goes and the next guy needs to be prepared to step up," said Roberts, the former backup signal caller. "I was ready to play, and I just went out there and played my best each game."
